The Scarborough Evening News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

Can you spare a cou­ple of hours a week to pro­vide com­pany to an older per­son liv­ing alone this win­ter – or give a carer the gift of some time for them­selves? Scar­bor­ough Sup­port for Car­ers is look­ing for new vol­un­teers to help them com­bat lone­li­ness and iso­la­tion. If you can spare a cou­ple of hours a week or fort­night, you can make a real dif­fer­ence. A drop-in ses­sion where peo­ple can find out more is be­ing held on Tues­day December 5 from 10am to noon at Der­went Val­ley Bridge Com­mu­nity Li­brary in West Ay­ton. You can also find out more by calling (01723) 364808 or go­ing to www.scar­bor­ough­sup­port­for­car­ers.org. Pic­tured are vol­un­teers with or­gan­iser Sarah Lally-Mar­ley.
